Adjust the volume on iPhone
When you’re on the phone or listening to songs, movies, or other media, the buttons on the side of iPhone adjust the audio volume. Otherwise, the buttons control the volume for the ringer, alerts, and other sound effects. You can also use Siri to turn the volume up or down.
Ask Siri. Say something like: “Turn up the volume” or “Turn down the volume.” Learn how to ask Siri.
